    Hi guys

    Just a little bit of advice im seeking. My little boy is 2years and 3months old. At home I have a cotbed, the side rails are still on and he only sleeps in the sleeveless sleeping bags as they have been wonderful since he was about 3months old.

    Im looking for advice on when the side rails should come off to make it into a toddler bed. The bed is for  birth to 4 years old so it is going to last a few more years but unsure of when the sides come off

    Also he stays at my Mums 2nights a week or she has him if i feel unwell. At the moment he is in a travel cot there but its looking too small for him and think he needs something bigger. What would i get for at my Mums. She has a single bed in my old room but would that be too big atm. Then if i buy a toddler bed it wouldnt really last long so is that a waste of money

    Just a little unsure just wandering what everyone else did with their little ones

    Thanks for reading

    Bed which is quite low so if child  fall out from bed.there is not far to fall

    . I also bought a guard but it wasnt used. I just had loads of pillows plus there is carpet in child room

    Don’t  waste your money on toddler bed as child grow up quickly. Just invest in good quality bed and mattress if you can afford to. I used Warren. They are company thake makes bed IN UK. Bed is wooden and handmade.

    Mine two went from a cot to a toddler bed, purely as we were given a toddler bed when my sisters kids grew out of it. The side rails stopped my two falling out of bed and the bed is are lower to the ground which means they are safer if they do fall.
    But you don’t need to buy a toddler bed, you can get the same benefits in other ways. You can buy rails to attach to ‘normal’ beds, I think Lindam do a version but also other brands. Some of my friends bought an Ikea bed which you could change the length of the bed – starts off toddler length and extends to full single. I think the benefit it your 3 years feels like they are swimming in a single bed, a shorter bed feels safer!
    Warren Evans did great beds – we have some – sadly they went out of business 🙁
